CYCI#58 Designers Choice

Hi there and welcome to CYCI#58 Designer's Choice. This week at, it was anything goes.  Well not quite, but it was designer's choice.


I didn't intend to use Whisper White paired with the Very Vanilla in the Typeset Speciality Designer Series Paper, but didn't notice until I was done.  I actually kind of like the contrast of the soft vanilla and the bold white.

I used the following Stampin' Up! products for this card:

Melon Mambo, Old Olive and Whisper White Cardstock,
Love is Kindness Stamp Set
Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper
Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad
Old Olive Ink Pad 
Melon Mambo and Old Olive Blendabilities
Linen Thread
Dazzling Details
Stampin' Dimensionals
